Tower of All Saints' Church, Garboldisham - Breckland

A C14 church tower, now a ruin. In 1734 the eastern face of the tower collapsed and the building was abandoned. Only part of the tower survives as a free-standing monument, with no upstanding remains of the nave or chancel. A vertical crack in the west face of the tower runs the full height of the structure giving rise to concern for its structural stability.
